My name is Emée. I am in my late twenties and I am many things. I am a film-maker, video editor and once in a while a French teacher. But most of the time, I am a traveller. I am a very slow traveller, actually. At the speed I am going now, it will take me my whole life to visit the whole world. But it’s alright . I travel with a little trumpet, and a microphone I use to record the ingredients of my sound salads. I usually stay with locals and rarely in hostels. I like learning languages a lot (and fortunately I’m quite good at it) and I have a degree in linguistics – that will explain some of the articles you’ll find here.
My very first trip away from home was a total disaster. I was eleven, I was supposed to stay three weeks with relatives in the Netherlands to learn Dutch. I was sent back to Mummy and Daddy after one week because I couldn’t stop crying… Who could have guessed that I would end up travelling so much after that? I have never been home-sick since!
My second big trip started with a 24-hours plane trip to Australia. I was with my cousin, both of us were 16 and very unexperienced. As the plane was rolling on the tarmac, we looked at each other and asked “Do you think we’ve have taken off yet??” (for our defence it was our first time in a plane and it was dark outside – we did feel stupid when the big push for take-off came).
So far, I have lived in France, Wales, Australia and Austria.
And I have also been to Armenia, Belgium, Bulgaria, China, Czech Republic, Georgia, Germany, England, Hong-Kong (I know it’s supposed to be part of China, but there is still a border between the two, they don’t have the same money and they don’t even drive on the same side…), India, Iran, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine. Well, and Vatican City, if you want to be precise. So, I still have a long way to go!
I hope you will enjoy this website. Do not hesitate to leave comments, as it is the only reward I get for all the hard work!
